AI potential for breast cancer screening

A major new study shows that artificial intelligence (AI) is a promising tool for breast cancer detection in screening mammography programmes.

Revolutionary thinking

Another step has been taken in the battle against antimicrobial resistance with the development of a synthetic antibiotic.

Eye scanner targets neurodegenerative diseases

In a large-scale EU project, the capabilities of optical coherence tomography (OCT) and Raman spectroscopy have been combined in a novel eye scanner. Using this, it is possible to add molecular information to the visualisation of the internal structure of the eye .

Expanding the target range of crispr/cas systems

US researchers have created genome editing technology that allows for variations in target DNA but retains local specificity.

My lab: A genomics unit in Wales

Joanne Watkins, Senior Biomedical Scientist and Deputy Head of Pathogen Genomics Unit, gives a guided tour of her laboratory in Cardiff.

“Deep learning poised to improve breast cancer imaging”

Researchers have developed a new image reconstruction approach that could improve breast cancer detection.

Mapping the entire human gut at single cell resolution

For the first time, entire human GI tracts from three organ donors have been used to show how cell types differ across all regions of the intestines.

Revealing the protective armour of a superbug

The spectacular structure of the protective armour of superbug Clostridioides difficile has been revealed for the first time, showing the close-knit yet flexible outer layer – like chain mail.

Modelling behaviour

Computational modelling has “provided a window into the evolution of a tumour”. Biological physicist Xiao Fu explains what this means for our knowledge of cancer progression.
